“Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.”
― Ben Carson, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story
As I sit here sometimes frustration comes over me. I have been an entrepreneur for almost five years and even though I have overcome many obstacles, new ones still sometimes catch me off guard. It’s not the issue of overcoming them because I know that with God on my side I can and have overcome everything that tried to take me down… But its the issue of getting tired. There are times when I am tired of working towards my goals and honestly sometimes I want to give up. On this road to growing a successful business it gets tough. It’s so many components to the point that I sometimes consider leaving and doing a regular 9 to 5 but… I know that’s not for me. You see I love what I do and I love helping others see the greatness within themselves there are just times my mind wants to say enough but my drive says keep going your almost there. So I do.
Through all this what is my motivation? What type of drive do I have that keeps me going? Knowing that it is not my will but God’s will and being a good role model to my children. To them I am something amazing. My son calls me Wonder Woman and he thinks I am unstoppable. My daughter thinks I’m the smartest woman in the world and wants to be like me in every way To me this is more valuable than anything in the world. So you tell me… With this support alone how can I give up? My children remind me everyday that I can achieve whatever I put my mind to. How do they know that?… Because I tell them the same thing every chance I get.
Ahhh, I’m glad I let this out, this road is tough but at the end it will be worth the journey. Now I can continue on my journey because I have love (my support) depending on me to do my best. Thanks for reading. Till next time… stay strong, stay humble, and stay blessed!
